Anyone with permission is allowed to be married at WA even non royals. But when dealing with her immediate family , The Queen likes to go by the book as much as possible. I don’t think anyone on TRF really thought Harry would get married anywhere other than Windsor.

But she was the only princess of the Blood after the Queen's aunt, the Princess Royal, and Princess Margaret. Above all Princess Marina's connections impliying a huge turnout of foreign royals, the Abbey was at the time a logical choice.

Well, Bertie, Prince of Wales married Princess Alexandra of Denmark in historic St George's. He was Queen Victoria's eldest son. Several of his siblings followed his example. I hardly think Victoria thought St George's was second rate.

So much for those who are apparently rejoicing that 'marrying at St George's shows how low Harry's stature is ' in the Royal family.

Who is rejoicing? Queen Victoria was in mourning and the somber atmosphere played into the wedding of the Prince of Wales. It’s not been considered a model to go by. Prince Harry is the younger son of the Prince of Wales and a grandson of the reigning monarch. That’s why some thought St. George’s was more likely not because he’s less than anyone else. Not only that but Harry’s wedding was/is bound to be smaller than others who have married at Westminster although he could have still used that venue. Personally, I was 50/50 and thought it could either be Westminster Abbey or St. George’s Chapel. It seems the couple chose St. George’s which is what matters...their choice.

Fairly predictable as most of us in the TRF have forecast.

I didn’t hear about that during the lead up to his wedding. Do you have a link to an article? Just out of curiousity.

I’ve never seen the inside of St. George’s except in pictures so I’m exciting to see Harry and Meghan’s wedding. Is there a link to Edward and Sophie’s wedding?

I agree Jacknch that new technology will help the television crews improve upon the filming and coverage that we had with Edward and Sophie's 1999 Wedding.
I visited St. George's Chapel last year, too, and it is absolutely beautiful and very historic. Unfortunately I can't remember the visit well enough now to picture where the guests will be arriving!

I do remember being disappointed by Edward and Sophie's wedding being a bit simpler. Theirs was the first royal wedding I was old enough to watch, and I was used to reading about Charles and Diana's/Andrew and Sarah's. However, Harry and Meghan seem to want to keep their relationship understated and private, so this definitely fits their personality - and after all, it's their day!

That was also 1963. A lot has changed since then.

I love St. George’s. It’s beautiful. I had to drag myself out the door, I enjoyed looking around so much.

It certainly has plenty of ties to the Windsor family. I’m sure this wedding will be more elaborate than Edward and Sophie’s. They planned on a more private life than Harry and Meghan are.

I know some people are saying he chose Windsor for personal reasons but honestly I don’t think he had much choice. WA and ST Paul’s we’re out of the question.
St. Paul was out of question for Harry. However, I think St. George was out of question for William as he is the future monarch. I don't think WA was out of question for Harry as the spares have married there before. In fact, all the recent royal weddings at St. George, with the exception of PoW and DoC, has been for royals not expected to keep their jobs outside of the Firm. PoW and DoC obviously had a different issue. I don't think anyone would've denied Harry a wedding at the Abbey if he really wanted to marry there, but he certainly had St. George as a realistic choice (obviously) whereas William didn't even if William would've preferred it.

Anne no - not done then.

Andrew yes.

The first balcony kiss was Charles and Diana so has only been by Andrew and William as they are the only two weddings with the opportunity since the first so there has only ever been three balcony kisses.

To avoid mistakes or confusion: I'd love to watch their wedding on TV, it's just because of the general protocol there.
Edward and Sophie's wedding and Charles and Camilla's blessing were both televised from St George's Chapel.

They don't allow television cameras to film the internment when a person dies - hence no coverage there of the Queen Mum's final internment on the day of her funeral but they do allow weddings to be televised in there.

I think a major factor was the age and health of Philip. WA has a long walk down the aisle that he would have to have made. At St George's if he, or the Queen, feel a bit down that day then they can use the same entrance that the Queen Mum used for Edward and Sophie's and so save them that very long walk as well as the stress of the ride through the streets in those uncomfortable carriages etc.

Honestly, regardless of the church and anything else, the most I'm moved by is the couple. It was REALLY amazing to see them in that interview together. I was a fan before, but WOW. Given the confirmation that the couple has spent time at Windsor regularly and how it's close to their heart, I can be happy with the choice.

I was trying to make the point that the difference in capacity could have been one of the deciding factors. Has it been made clear whether it is a family wedding or a state occasion, that then reflects on the must invites. There is no need to be all picky about how many friends and family they might have.

Banners don't go up until they are installed and that is done on Garter Day.

Mabye it's not a canopy, but there's something they always set up there that makes it really frustrating to watch.

I expect a fairly normal high church service with choir music only.

Andrew's wedding was attended by several guests from foreign royal families including several reigning monarchs. Somehow, I don't see that happening with Harry's wedding. What do you think ?

I would be surprised if the wedding were not televised.
